Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" (1989) is Nicole Ansari's selection for PS21's Artists' Choice Series. The showing will be on Tuesday, September 8 at 7 pm in PS21's open-air pavilion theater. Told over the course of a single summer day, the film creates a portrait of Bed-Stuy from the perspective of a delivery boy named Mookie, played by Spike Lee himself. According to independent film critic Kambole Campbell, "This particularly hot day brings simmering resentments within the community to the surface—racism, frustration at their neighbors' failures, and the institutions that rule them."
